    Thinking of buying a crew cab as is is getting to be a pain in the butt putting my 2 yr old son in the back of the blazer and I have another baby due in Dec. So... I was thinking that I might sell thye blazer and get a crew cab. I want fuel injection, auto with over drive and a solid axle. Did the 1 tons switch body style in '87 or did the keep the old style with the burban and blazers??

    What years to look for and what to avoid? Big block, small block, diesel...doens't relly matter to me but I am kinda partial to big blocks.

    The last year for the 'old body style' on the 1 tons is '91, just like the Blazers and Subs.

    They will be in only crew cabs, or duallies though.

    I have an 88 ext cab dually. It is the new body style with a FI 454 and IFS. I get horrible gas mileage (10 empty, 6 with Blazer on my 20' trailer). They made both the new and old body styles until 91 then 92 went to only new body style. The new style had IFS and old style had straight axle. The 6.2 diesel was up until 93 or 94 and then was 6.5L after that. If you want to pull, the 6.2L had no guts and the 6.5L which had much better get up and go would be a better choice. I know someone who has more than 600,000 miles on his 6.5L and hasn't done anything except a water pump and injector pump. That's a damn good testimonial from him.

    That's about all I got for ya.

    THATK30GUY is right. One ton solid axle "old body style" were made until 1991.

    The last year of the old 3+3 SA is '91. All of them built from '87 on will be fuel injected, but I'm pretty sure they all had Turbo 400's (no overdrive) except in '91. '91 was the first year for the 4L80e, or the electronically controlled Turbo 400 w/overdrive. This was a big plus for the 454SS pickup that year, since the '90 model had no overdrive. The OD makes the '91 crew cab highly desirable (at least in my opinion).

    so I guess I am to be looking for a 91 and expect to a pay a premium...[​IMG] Figures what I want is the most desirable. I guess I have good taste.

    I was looking a some new trucks and I`m sorry but I refuse to pay over $55,000 cdn for a new truck. Hell, I paid $111,500 for my house!! So I really don't care how much the '91 will cost as once I see the right one I will buy it and probable keep it until I die. Cheaper to rebuild than to buy new. Get a better truck that way too...

    I'll start looking a round now but I won't be buying anything until after the new baby is born. If I came home with a new truck right now my wife would kill me!! (Ever heard of Lorrena Bobbit??)[​IMG] Don't need that stuff going on around here.

    Also I`m undecided on whether to sell the blazer or keep it. Kinda thinking on keeping it. Only has 80,000 kms onit (50,000 miles). Pretty hard to replace it.

    Thanks for the replies people, appriciate it.

    There is a member living in the CO area somewhere selling a dually crew cab. Its the fuel injected one, I think it was an '88, and has the 'old body style'. He was trying to work a trade with me for my Blazer and for me to pay a cash difference.

    I cant remember his name or username right now. I do know the pics he sent me showed an immaculate truck. It was loaded with all the goodies. TBI 454, I think he put in a 4L80E tranny, 205 t-case, etc.

    Maybe if he sees my post here he will reply. [​IMG]
